What is Dye-sublimation?
Dye-sublimation uses a printing technique that diffuses dye onto paper. This dye comes in the form of a ribbon, which is converted into a diffused gas when heat is applied; the dye is absorbed by a special receiving layer on the paper.
The print head heats very accurately to vary temperatures, creating different shades of color based on the amount of heat applied. The print head is capable of producing 256 levels of each color (cyan; magenta; yellow), and creates a total of 16.77 million true colors by combing the three primary colors.
Then the dye layers are sealed into the paper and the image is protected against UV light, fingerprints, and even water.
There is no smudging, running, or blotching because your prints are dry and ready to touch as soon as they leave the printer.
